Atleast they could make it easier for us to be rid of the damn moves. I still kind of don't get why they simply can't be replaced. I mean they made it a lot easier with TMs by making them permanent because there are SO many pokemon so I could see them tweaking this.

Yeah, making them deletable would be so much easier. Or just make them better moves! I get that the one's you get earlier on are weaker, but even by those standards Rocks Smash and Cut are crappy moves!
Also, the Move Deleter is basically for HMs right? So why not get rid of the mechanic and just make them replaceable- can anyone tell me why your stuck with HMs? Is it something to do with not being stuck in an area?
There could be multiple safeguards for THAT situation, but what if you were on a ledge and the only way off is to use Rock Climb and you delete it? And you don't have a Pokemon in your party that can learn Fly? And you SAVED on that ledge? What now?
Clauncher, Vivillon, Chespin... Here it comes!
I have no problem with HMs. The way I play I only use 4 Pokemon anyway, leaving me two slots for HM Slaves (generally Tropius and Biberal)
Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted-
Would you capture it or just let it slip?
If you carry the HMs around with you, you gotta just reapply it- if you're in a situation where you can't switch pokemon and you deleted the move than surely you' be carrying the same pokemon?
I'd rather visit a move relearner and satisfy their heart scale fetish than go to see the REAL p*rvert who like to traumatise pokemon till they forget moves :P
well for One HM are re-learnable so all u had to do is reteach it while on that ledgeThere could be multiple safeguards for THAT situation, but what if you were on a ledge and the only way off is to use Rock Climb and you delete it?

i dont think hms should just be forgettable at any time. it would compicate things and just be an annoyance i think. instead they should have more than one move deleter. one in every city or one in every 2-3
some hm moves i keep like surf some can be useful but i still don't get why they can't be removed to begin with

If infrared trading returns, there's also the issue of getting stuck because you got into an area using an HM, then traded the Pokemon capable of learning the HM, and now you have no way out of the area.
The only HMs that could be deleted, then, would be Fly and Strength (under Gen V mechanics). Still, making those two moves TMs would reduce the number of HMs to four (Cut, Surf, Waterfall, Dive), which would definitely ease matters.
I will be devastated if TM's are no longer endlessly reusable.
